Today we pass through forests and alongside tea plantations as we continue through the highlands. We cross numerous passes, including the highest pass in Vietnam: Tram Thon pass, at 1900m. This pass is known as ‘Heaven’s Gate’, It is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to view the spectacular majesty of Fansipan mountain from the top of the pass.

Day 6: Sapa day tour

After 5 fun days of this amazing motorcycle tour Vietnam, it’s really joyful to have an easy day off the bikes.  Sa Pa is lovely little town located at the height of 1600 meters above the sea, surrounded by amazing valley with the villages of minorities, we can either take it easy in Sa Pa town, or take another SaPa motorbike tour along Muong Hoa valley-one of the most beautiful valleys in northern Vietnam, or down deep into the valley to see more interesting local people. All options are dominated by the crest of the enormous Fans pan mountain range. The entire region is populated by Hmong, Giay, Tay and Dao people.

Vietnam Motorcycle Adventures suggestion is to take a short walk to Ham Rong – a highest peak of the town where you can get full view of Sa Pa or take a short Sapa motorcycle tour along the Muong Hoa valley where you can see the amazing view of rice terrace fields and visiting more H’mong and Zay people.

Overnight in hotel.

Day 7 SAPA – Vu Linh/ 220km

Today's road trip will cost you a distance of 220 km. The plan for the 5th day of Off-road Northern Vietnam Motorbike Tours - 6 Days towards Northwest regions is to ride from Sapa down to Lao Cai city and meet the Chinese border region. The interesting thing when visiting Vietnam – China border is the busy scene of exchanging goods between people in the two countries. The coffee here is another plus point as it has good taste at a low price. Along the way, it is common to see some remote villages and local markets there, our team will pass a lake named Thac Ba.

From there, we follow a small road that has two sides of palm trees, together with great mountains. Ride for more few kilometers; the road becomes better and larger with beautiful views. That is when we get closer to Vu Linh. After approximately 6 hours of sitting on your motorbikes, our tour team arrives in Vu Linh and spends the 5th night here when you are welcome in the hospitality of the local host.

Overnight homestay in Vu Linh

Day 8 VU LINH – HANOI (180 KM) B,L,D

After breakfast, we walked around Thac Ba Lake and travelled back to Ha Noi. Along the way, I could see rural Vietnam's broad, verdant countryside stretched out before me through several patches of mountain fog. Our modest convoy travelled through dozens of remote towns filled with happy, waving children, knee-deep rivers to cross, and thin mountain routes to climb and descend, we will pass through a green tea plantation. We promise it will be a part of your best off-road Vietnam Motorcycle Adventures.
